Huge congratulations to our 5th class girls, Maeve , Seren and Michaela who successfully qualified to the national final of the Intel Mini Scientist competition on December 5th.
Their project entitled ‘Are you eating plastic for dinner?’ examines our use of plastic and how it is entering the food chain. A startling fact is that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish!! The the girls hope to educate the students and parents of Scoil Bhríde about our use of plastic and to reduce the amount of plastic bottles our school are using.
The girls are strongly encouraging students to use tin drinking bottles rather than plastic bottles. We are hoping the students could perhaps add a tin drinking bottle to their wish list this Christmas.
Please take some time to look at this short video which highlights how important the girls project and campaign is: Are you eating plastic for dinner? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjT8GG0ETQg
We wish them the very best of luck.
